Network Technician (Former Employee), Waterloo, ONOctober 2, 2014
Pros: you are treated like a person, not just a person doing a job.
Cons: some decisions have to go through a lot of different people so change doesn't happen too quickly.
My 1 year contract at the University of Waterloo was one of the best jobs I ever had. I found the work pace reasonable. They want you to do a good job, not a rushed job. I met so many people who were full time employees there and every one of them seemed very happy and satisfied. If you are fortunate to gain full time employment there you can even take – more... courses at a VERY reduced rate, which is a huge bonus for those who thirst for knowledge. :) – less

Pros: easy going, less hectic
Cons: long hours
A typical day at the job starts with a fresh cup coffee. The working environment is so friendly and refreshing. what I have learnt from this job is how to handle stress and be productive through out the day. I have learnt to take challenges and handle every situation no matter how hard it maybe. The management team and the co-workers were extremely – more... cooperative and helpful. the hardest part of the job was, off course, the long hours but anyhow I have managed it very well at my own. The most enjoyable part was the co-workers and the professor I was working under, they made my days at work go by so quick and easy. – less
